I support replacing the Elephant Bar with an In-N-Out Burger, as there is no In-N-Out nearby.

I live on Harrison Ave. near Payne. I often use the intersection at Hamilton and Almarida to get to my house or to shop at Kohl's, etc. The traffic at Hamilton and Almarida is notoriously bad and confusing, with lanes coming off and onto Hwy. 17, out of Home Depot, Fry's, and other shops. Its often congested and dangerous. I feel that if In N Out builds at that intersection, I will no longer be able to use that intersection to enter or exit my own neighborhood, and it will add to traffic congestion and risk to drivers. I love InNOut Burgers, but I don't think that location will work for those of us who live, work and play in this neighborhood.

Driving west on Hamilton Avenue trying to make a right turn on Almarida and merging with cars exiting 17 S. is already very treacherous. The congestion from in and out burger will only make it worse. If people really want an in and out burger, find a different location than there.

Ive been here since 1958. No one is more upset at whats happened to this valley than me....but
for the family starting the petition, why did you buy a home in that particular area?
I think you wanted to be close to freeway access/restaurants etc. That is the price you pay.
There was even a restaurant there before anyway

I live at 601 Almarida Drive in Campbell and I am opposed to the building of an In & Out Burger at the corner of Almarida & Hamilton.
I lived in Los Angeles for 9 years and have personally seen and experienced what happens when you build a In & Out Burger on a street and not in a shopping center. The lines are horrifying and the congestion bleeds out into the street causing traffic. They also maintain late hours and are a popular hang out on the weekends for people who just spent the night drinking at local clubs. With bars being close by in downtown Campbell, I can guarantee you many of those patrons will come to In & Out at 12/1 am seeking food to sober up. This is a direct threat to public safety in this neighborhood and I object to it.
I have no issues with a sit down restaurant being located here (like the old Elephant Bar) as patrons come and go over hours and not minutes, the traffic is far less of concern with a traditional sit down restaurant.

Too much traffic at hamilton and 17 already. There is no room for street overflow here and it will jam up both intersections there. Also have you ever tried to pull out of Home Depot against the traffic coming down Almarida? Even with the light the Almarida cars think they have right of way over Home Depot and they do NOT. This is the only traffic light I've ever seen with such ambiguity and add In-N-Out will make it much worse. thanks Byran Longmire City of Campbell

I am not sure what the concern is about having In N Out at this location but I imagine it is concern about the traffic and pollution impact, especially with a drive-thru. If that is the case, perhaps the council should reach out to Marin County where they allowed an In N Out to be built but without a drive-thru to limit pollution and congestion. Did it work? Are they happy with it? In N Out is light years better than other fast food options and it would be nice to have a healthier burger choice. Personally, I would prefer something like Rubio's - less traffic and even healthier.

Its always good to have another food joint in Campbell, but this one right next to an already chaotic traffic area will make things even worse and eventually put public safety in jeopardy. It would be great if the city considers moving this joint to a place where it is less crowded and to a more wider traffic area. On a longer run, this place will eventually be inaccessible for a leisure walk for an otherwise pleasant evergreen Campbell. Please leave Campbell as is, it has a reputation of being beautiful and peaceful at the same time.

I would be happy with an In-n-Out built here if the development somehow would make the BIKE & PEDESTRIAN experience safer and more welcoming. Is such a thing possible?
Here's a suggestion: reduce the number of parking stalls, double or triple the size of the outdoor dining patio and have the patio adjacent to or near the public sidewalk. The wall shown between the sidewalk & restaurant seems unfriendly.

The Intersection is already challenged with too much traffic. In and Out Burger would be a welcomed addition to Campbell. However we already have overflowing number of burger joints within a 2 mile radius of The Elephant Bar site - In and Out Burger yes - but not at that location. 880 Traffic exiting on Hamilton is already dangerous. SAVE LIVES - FIND ANOTHER SITE.
